Anybody can suggest a way of bringing in the vectorial data in a PDF (lines, perhaps fills, perhaps text) so that it is editable in Archicad? I am trying an online converter to DWG with so-so results.

Once you bring the PDF into ArchiCAD, you can just "Explode into Current View." This was a new feature in v18, I think.

As Richard says you can place the pdf as an external drawing reference in AC and explode it PROVIDED the pdf is generated in vector format. If the PDF contains a scanned image there isn't anything you can do in AC to turn that into vector data.

!!!

Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world, I feel I can't take it.

Thanks very much.
